COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered
Fresh off his cart is No.4. It’s an unpasteurised shimmering blonde concoction of fruits. Instant refreshment with an insanely fragrant aroma. No.4 is the first of the good DR’s elixirs to emerge from his apothecary. We expect more brews to follow from this enigmatic character.

A very pale blonde colour with very little head, goes well with a hoppy but not overpowering aroma. That trend continues in the taste, one of hops but not as heavy as an IPA, there’s a bit more of a roasted taste in this one.

eastkenttom (64) - herne bay, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Ok but not as nice as Wychwood’s Wychcraft, which is similar but better. A little lighter, but don’t see why they made it other than to have a lower blonde ABV.

A very pleasant beer. Not much of an aroma. Initial taste is biscuity and moorish. A lingering bitterness rounds off the beer wonderfully.

wimpyjoe (5073) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle from Tesco, Stockport. Golden-blonde with next to no head. Has a light tasting malt-hop balance with more of the former involved.

jercraigs (8220) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2015
Wychwood Dr Thirsty’s No 4 Blonde 2015-01-25. Dark yellow / light orange body, modest white head fades. Aroma is mild, light grassy hops over cereally English pale malt. Moderate bitterness throughout, mild fruity touches over a core that is dominated by cereal grains. Average plus body, modest carbonation. Some nice highlights but the underlying grains clash with otherwise pleasant hop character for me. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto.

Strangebrewer (946) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2015
bottle. Poured hazy straw coloured with a filmy white head. Aroma is fresh with citrusy hops. Light body with prickly carbonation and a tart finish. Flavour is mostly grainy malt, some apricot with a faint peppery note.

Bov (10060) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JAN 31, 2015
from Monde des Bières - light hazy blond beer with a little foam left; nice lace; subtle spicy hops and light yeasty; moderate malt body, some earthy bitterness, quite dry and very dusty; light spicy finish - unexciting to say the least

Shain (101) - ISRAEL - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle, 500ml. Pours light golden green, unclear, with a short sparse white head. Aroma is hoppy, yeasty, white wine. Mouth feel is light with medium body and light carbonation. Taste bitter-sweet, slightly sour, with dry lightly bitter ending. Flavors of vegetal and herbal hops, nice and not too aggressive or bitter. Slight malt. A little boring and simple. Very light. Not my favorite style.
